I wanted the shot to resemble a scene from one of those old black and white drama serials.
First up is this gorgeous 1/8 scale PVC figure of Haruka Takamori from AliceSoft‘s latest eroge Beat Blades Haruka. Alter’s detail work combined with an amazing, dynamic sculpt will certainly get this figure on every collector’s must-have list. She’ll be released September 2008 for 6,800 Yen. I love Haruka’s design, especially her costume’s color scheme. I’ll really be looking forward to this one!
First seen in the fictitious anime Getsumen Heiki Mina in the live-action drama Densha Otoko, the heroine Mina Tukushiro became popular enough that Gonzo eventually made a real anime series, Getsumento Heiki Mina, lasting 11 episodes. Alter‘s 1/8 scale PVC figure of Mina seems to have been inspired by Okama‘s original character design, adapting a more subdued watercolor/pastel-ey color palette. The figure will retail for 6,300 Yen and will hit the shelves on August 2008.
Alter unveiled a figure that’s surely in a Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu fan’s wishlist, the sweet Mikuru Asahina in her waitress uniform! She’ll come in at 1/8 scale and will be released this June for 6,090 Yen. Expect preorders to come up anytime soon *edit: it just did – Amiami, Hobby Search * ! In the words of Taniguchi… “KITAAAA!!”!!
